Ep. 157: Boy Scouts, Preemptive Love Coalition and Lysa TerKeurst

On today’s program, news about the sex abuse case involving the Boy Scouts of America. Survivors appear to have rejected the settlement plan. And clergy burnout has become more acute in the era of COVID, but some pastors say sabbaticals are helping them and their families cope. And Proverbs 31 Ministries founder and president Lysa TerKeurst announced on social media Jan. 1 that she and her husband Art are getting divorced.

We begin today with a story that we’ve been following here at MinistryWatch for more than two years, and that’s the story of a ministry called Preemptive Love.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy. We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Emily Kern, and Casey Sudduth. Writers who contributed to today’s program include Anne Stych, Shannon Cuthrell, Bob Smietana, Paul Clolery, Audrey Jackson, and Randall Chase.
